Microsoft confirms 'Quantum Break' coming in 2015 to Xbox One

One of the very first Xbox One games that Microsoft announced during its official introduction to the game console in May 2013 was Quantum Break. It's the latest third person action game from developer Remedy, the creators of the acclaimed Max Payne and Alan Wake series. Today, Microsoft confirmed that Quantum Break won't be released for the Xbox One until sometime in 2015.

After several months of waiting, fans of Remedy finally got a new trailer for the game today on the Xbox Wire site, which features the developer's Creative Director Sam Lake giving some more information about its unique mix of gameplay combined with live action cut-scenes that play out like episodes of a TV show. Lake revealed in the trailer that while the game will center on Quantum Break's hero Jack Joyce, as he tries to prevent time itself from fracturing, the live action sequences will focus on his enemies at the evil Monarch Solutions.

The player's actions and choices in Quantum Break will influence how both the game and the TV show sequences unfold, according to Xbox Wire. Microsoft and Remedy will show off Quantum Break's gameplay live for the first time at August's Gamescom event in Germany.

This IS like max Payne tenfold !!!! ultimate slowdown. They should do the matrix game!!! I love remedy. I still have to finish that one scary game they made. What's it called?

I got an Xbox One at Chrismtas, my sister despite me telling her otherwise bought a wii u

damn! I'm seriously considering selling mine and getting a wii u. Probably the most underrated console ever released. I think it's fantastic....ok, the graphics are nowhere near the xbox one or ps4, but I really loved playing the games on it.

mmmmmmm

LOL and this is why there is no point going next gen yet. Pay a premium with absolutely nothing worthwhile out currently. Still waiting for the next gen to actually start.

Remedy has an excellent track record in great gameplay and deep and fleshed out storytelling with max payne 1, 2 and alan wake. Hope this game won't disappoint either.

Yeah. I'd rather have a great late game than one on time and clearly rushed. I just hope Alan Wake 2 is something we'll see. The original and American Nightmare were great games. I'm only sorry that MS published them... Had they been on the 360 and PS3, then Remedy would've had a huge hit, IMO.

I thought this was out in September. This is the one I've been looking forward to most this year.

On the plus side, maybe they are upgrading the game now they can (maybe) use the Kinect reserve.

It looks a lot like Alan Wake and while I loved that game this looks a little derivative. Hopefully this time it will be released on PC without delay, though a PC release still seems uncertain. You've got to love Microsoft's commitment to PC gaming when they go out of their way to prevent games from being released on PC.

And this is why Microsoft is failing with the Xbox one, announce a game then release it 2 years later? Pathetic.

So because someone is doing better than you that means you are failing? I mean you could probably get away with saying the WiiU is failing but the XO and PS4 are far from failing. Selling 5million in 5months compared to 5million 360s in 18 months is a failure? Damn the 360 was a disaster....

Huh? Have you seen the PS4's lineup and the current amount of delayed games on that platform? Xbox One for the foreseeable future has a much better game lineup.
